Pretty views and good food

Manarola seemed to have a more tranquil atmosphere than neighbouring Riomaggiore, and this restaurant fitted in beautifully with a view over the harbour.

Better than Il Porticciolo Manarola and has the best sunset view for dinner. I highly recommend the lobster spaghetti.

The restaurant is along the side of a curved pathway overlooking the cliffs by the sea, and it serves fresh pasta and seafood up there with the best of them, though their lobster spaghetti really takes the cake. Service was standard, and therefore impressive, given how busy the place can be (bustling at 9.30pm on a Thursday). Pastas range from... More

Great spot for some local seafood and a great view of the ocean. The prices are a bit steep but overall good value for the quality and freshness of the fish.

The food was quite good. Service was slow even considering the usual slow pace of Italian dining but in their defense it WAS very busy. The view is beautiful as the restaurant overlooks the rocky coastline of the Mediterranean. I recommend reservations during the peak tourist season.

Gorgeous food and gorgeous location. Staff are lovely. Portions are not huge, which means that you (for once!) get to eat all courses!

Not only is this restaurant in the best location overlooking the sunset in the evening which is divine, you're under a canopy to shelter you from the wind if there is any. Table service was rapid even though the restaurant was plentiful and most of the tables were occupied. The food was divine, I enjoyed fried squid which you could... More

Lunch today at Marina Piccola - grilled tuna, mixed grill of calamari, prawns and anchovies followed by creme caramel. Excellent service from a very busy waitress, good food, pleasing light white wine with coffee to finish off. Great view and price of meal not exorbitant.

We went there after DAL BILLY refused to serve us after 15hrs. This restaurant is full of life , food is cheap considering the location and we ate very well. Service is fluent in English and the owner is also a server. We really enjoyed our food there and recommends the shrimps and the pasta aloo scoglio

Stunning view watching the sunset over manarola and the best vongole I've ever had. Wash it down with a local vino Bianco and its becomes the perfect dinner! Highly recommend and the staff were lovely
